En su quinta pelea profesional, García se enfrentó a Guadalupe Díaz el 19 de abril de 2008, en el Thomas & Mack Center en Las Vegas, derrotó a Díaz con una andanada de golpes en el primer round, por lo que el réferi tuvo que detener la pelea al ver que Díaz difícilmente podía mantenerse en pie. Su siguiente pelea fue el 3 de mayo de 2008, en el Home Depot Center en Carson, California frente a Julio Gamboa. García dominó toda la pelea con la rapidez y potencia de sus golpes, logrando ganar finalmente por decisión unánime. En la cartelera de Bernard Hopkins vs Kelly Pavlik en el Boardwalk Hall en Atlantic City, García detuvo a Dean Nash por TKO después de que su oponente cayera a lona tres veces en el tercer round.
This is a bad omen folks. Garcia is tapping Morales' guard with his left hand, literally telling Morales where the next shot is going to come. After four taps, Morales decides it's time to get aggressive. Bad move. Garcia blasts Morales with a left hook that launches Morales through the ropes. You can see it in Morales' eyes, he's not getting back up. KO for Garcia."
"You can't deny what Wilder's done in the ring so far, and he's got a bright future," said Scott. "But we have to put our friendship aside on March 15, and it's going to be a great fight."
"You have to be able to touch him to change that," Hopkins said. "Styles make fights. The difference between Danny Garcia fighting Floyd Mayweather -- if it is possible -- and anybody else that Floyd Mayweather fought other than Shane Mosley, who did heavy work, is to be around the African American's soul and spirit. To understand when a guy do this and a guy do that and you're not squared up. Certain cultures have certain ways of approaching situations and when you get a guy who understands the chess game of why a guy uses offense to make defense because he is waiting to counter. … Danny Garcia will be in his gym and the gym in North Philly with guys like myself and younger guys who can emulate and imitate the Floyd style. You need to have the ability to adapt and adjust to the style."
